famous one. it was sweaty, dick nixon sick with a fever against polished john f. kennedy. legend has it that richard nixon heard that jfk was not going to get makeup from cbs for that debate, and so nixon said, well, i won't have any makeup either, then. even though he was running a 102 degree fever and not only was nixon ill that day, it turned out that when jfk turned down the cbs makeup offer, it was because he apparently had his own makeup arrangements already made. and so we got jfk with makeup and no fever, we got richard nixon with no makeup and a fever. what we got on tv in the first televised presidential debate in our nation's history was beauty and the beast. right? of course, jfk went on to win that election that year, whether or not it was because of the debate, i don't know, but thus was born the entire school of punditry that says it's all about the optics and watching things with the sounds off and all that existentially exhausting stuff we still say today. but here is the relevant context for understanding what happened last night. when mitt romney beat president oba

, the great thing about president obama and the debates with john mccain, it really wasn't so much what he said. it was the way he held himself compared with the way that senator john mccain held himself, and senator mccain looked increasingly flustered. he looked frustrated with candidate obama. i think that the great thing about president obama is that he does have the capacity to be totally in the moment and to be totally funny. he is funny on his feet. and so, you know, for him to practice what he's going to do in case of a zinger, i think he's got the blessing of being rather spontaneous and the blessing of being up against someone who is incapable of spontaneity, reveals himself in those spontaneous moments like the 47% taped remark to be not a terribly likable person. so i think for the president to practice the way he handles zingers defeats what the president is particularly good at. >> well, actually barack means -- barack means in swahili blessed one, so you got that one right. will president obama challenge romney on the details of his vague tax plan, a tax plan almost every ex

-called star chamber with the people who know a little more about this. john hillsenrath, chief economics correspondent at the "wall street journal." robert, the reason we wanted to do this, i don't think americans really know who these women and men are and they are incredibly powerful. what can you tell us about the real operation of the federal reserve? >> well, first of all, it is a mix between economists and basically bank regulators that are on the fomc. economists tend to have stronger conviction as far as economic policies concerned. most of the bank regulator types i think they tend to go along with economic policy. it is rare that they dissent from the chairman and the vice chairman. >> john, who are these people? what do they do? how does ben bernanke keep them in line? what are they thinking? that's to john. >> well, so there's 12 presidents of regional fed banks and they're nominated by the boards of those banks and bankers actually have a direct say in nominating them. then there's seven governors who have to go through the confirmation process in the senate. so it is a very

is a pretty wonderful thing. >> that's our show for tonight. i am john stossel. thanks for watching. [ cheers and applause ] >>> hello everybody. thank you. great to see the folks here. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. last week on this show, i told you that your government had lied to you about the attacks in egypt and libya when they claimed they were acts of a spontaneous mob in reaction to a youtube video. i said then and i repeat now, i normally would not have used such strong language and made such a bold declaration but the continuing revelations confirm that my statement was not an exaggeration. our government has lied to us. they did it knowingly. our ambassador to libya isn't dead because of some film. he is dead because we failed to heed the warnings that an attack was imminent. it took the administration two weeks to acknowledge that this was a carefully planned terrorist attack. egyptian president new it and white house knew it but ours wasn't honest with it and tried to continue the official story about it that this was all about a film that insult
